Marijuana prohibition may have caused wreck leaving one dead, 22 injured

Source: ABC 7 Eyewitness News

“Police said the Bronx man who drove his car down a crowded sidewalk in Times Square Thursday was apparently high on synthetic marijuana. Law enforcement sources told Eyewitness News 26-year-old Richard Rojas appeared extremely impaired after the crash. It’s believed he had been smoking the drug, also known as K2, prior to the crash that killed a tourist and injured 22 others.” [editor’s note: K2 wouldn’t even exist if it wasn’t for the war on marijuana. But I won’t be holding my breath waiting for the drug warriors to accept their share of responsibility for this – TLK] (05/18/17)

    The man was a known drunk! You know, alcohol, that other “drug” that is used by so many. If anything, the cannabis might have tempered the alcohol, but in the end the man either chose or mindlessly allowed himself to be an irresponsible person who happened to do something so stupid it caused death. The PERSON killed that girl. That person chose to be impaired and stupid. The drugs were not the problem.
